By Kieron Byatt, PaperCut – So you’ve outsourced your payroll and personnel software to cloud services. You don’t need on-premise servers anymore… almost!
There’s still one piece of hardware you’re relying on – your print server.
You can’t print without a printer (obviously) so you can’t throw away your MFD/copier. What about the print server? You’re using the cloud for all your other business needs, why not your printing?
Look, let’s be real for a second. When it comes to print management cloud services, there’s one simple fact…
